Eilhard Mitscherlich (1794-1863), one of the founders of modern chemistry, held the first chair of chemistry at Berlin University for over 40 years. His life mirrors the development of chemistry in its classical period. [The book] is balanced and judicious, bases itself on extensive archival research, takes into account the best and most recent scholarship, and fully reflects H. W. Schutt's solid understanding of the chemistry and its historical context. --Steven Turner, Department of History, University of New Brunswick
